Wyatt Earp Goes to the Movies

Wyatt Earp in 1887
According to American Experience on PBS, Wyatt Earp (1848-1929), one of the famous wild west lawman/murderer, most notably from The Shoot Out at the OK Corral, loved to watch cowboy movies at the end of his life.  Seems strange to think of a "Real" cowboy watching cowboy movies.
Thinking of it my grandfather fought in WWII and loved WWII movies.  Never thought it was strange until now.  My grandfather never talked about his time in the war but liked to watch it happen on TV.
Will I one day like to watch movies about people writing a blog?
Maybe its not the same.
